Yours seems to be the same as mine (from a chip and phy point of view)
although mine has a DEC assigned ethernet address and yours is from
Telebit.  I don't think that difference matters.

Some things can be blamed on attempted intelligence gone wrong.  But not
this one.  This is a simple bug.  My card works perfectly under 4.5.0
on the same machine.  It fails with -current.  But with one change
reverted, it works again.  Now all I have to do is work out what is
the real underlying cause, since the current code looks right at first
glance.  At least I have the old DEC datasheets, and some info on some
of the clones.
